A lovely flavoursome style, the richly fruited bouquet shows ripe strawberry, stone fruit, watermelon and floral characters. The palate is succulent and beautifully weighted with silky texture and elegant fruit intensity, wonderfully framed by refreshing acidity. The wine is up front and approachable with generous fruit flavours. 93 points, 5 Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2017
